DescriptionThe purpose of this study was to examine upper class undergraduate student citation strategies that were used in completing their research assignments. We analyzed a total of 826 citations from seventy- five (75) political science undergraduate research papers in order to determine the types of scholarly resources that were utilized by these students. Additionally we attempted to determine the extent of student use of online sources and the persistence of these online sources over time. Findings are highlighted with suggestions for future research.
